I'm the founder of Inventables

My Story

I'm the founder and CEO of Inventables an online hardware store for designers. We're the makers of Easel the best free app for design and making with a 3D carving. We make X-Carve and Carvey 3D carving machines that expand not just what can be made but more importantly who can make it.

In addition to Inventables I run ORDCamp with Brian Fitzpatrick of Google. I sit on the board of the Fast Forward exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry and the Tinkering Lab at the Children's Museum in Chicago.

Before Inventables I was the founder of Lever Works. In December 2001 the company was bought by Leo Media.
